Thirty-two consecutive cases of small bowel perforations have been analysed. The most common aetiology seems to be nonspecific ulceration of the small bowel. The clinical features are not always obvious. Hence careful watch and suspicion are necessary. Four quadrant tap is the most reliable investigation. Early diagnosis is probably the only way to reduce mortality. Minimal surgery gives almost the same results as major surgi­cal procedures.
